Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge.”). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

Birds of a Feather

Talk about a crowded communal living space.

Thousands of birds have flocked to an industrial chimney in the Hampden neighborhood in Baltimore. Each night at dusk they emerge to dine on tens of thousands of insects nearby — drawing as many as 100 people a night to watch the spectacle. Now, that’s the type of de-bugging that TWIJ can get behind.


The News

Got an idea to help save the world from climate change? Exelon Corporation, a Fortune 100 that’s the country’s largest energy provider by revenue, is offering $20 million for seed-stage startups working on clean energy and environmental technology in D.C. and Baltimore, among other cities. Applications are due Oct. 25 and will be announced in December. Click the link to find out what kind of projects they’re looking to fund.

If you’re looking to learn to code but can’t leave your job, Nucamp is launching an affordable and flexible coding bootcamp in Baltimore. In Nucamp’s hybrid model, students complete their assignments online before meeting up in-person at workshops once a week. Course options range from a four-week beginner boot camp to advanced courses that cover front-end web, mobile development and full stack web. Everyone’s welcome: More than half of Nucamp’s students are women, and close to a third are minorities.

The Jobs


  • What’s in your GitHub? Capital One is hiring a data scientist for a position it’s calling Senior Associate, Data Analytics – United Income. You’ll help organize data, uncover insights and conduct new research in the field of wealth management. Bonus if you have experience working with large datasets and writing SQL code.

  • Party on, Wayne. The party, meeting and event planning platform Social Tables, now a part of Cvent, is hiring an Account Manager to work on contract renewals, up-sells and cross-sells.

The End

That’s it! If you happen to hear chittering in your chimney, it’s probably just some birds — here at TWIJ we don’t chitter, but we are always here to help you spread your wings.
